Working with tools has always been part of the Flanagan style. “All my life, I’ve been repairing things,” he said. “My claim to fame is I’ve never had a repairman or a carpenter or an electrician in my house.”
Bob Flanagan, a retired General Electric electrical and mechanical engineer tunes up and tests the two-wheelers that fill the basement of his Nottingham Drive home. They’ll all be on the road in Lake George this summer. On the pedals will be young men and women from Russia, Macedonia, Turkey and other countries. The exchange students, who travel to the United States each spring and summer for work experience, need transportation as they move from morning to afternoon jobs.
